Lost wax bronze casted statues make a striking impression.  Silver and red are a festive combination, especially when illuminated by candlelight.  Pomegranates and rose hips hold a rich color that will stand out nicely against freshly cut greens and silver metal garland.

Bring elegance to your mantle with classic blue and gold sparkle. Mosaic vases magnify the flicker of a candle’s flame as each circle of glass reflects at a different angle.  Waves of colored Phoenician glass swirl and encircle the light that burns brightly within them.  For a more formal look, make the mantel pieces symmetrical, and add a star garland for peeks of gold throughout the length of the space.
